I don’t buy or eat a lot of meat. When I do, I’ll buy a small, organic chicken that my husband, daughter and I can get three meals out of. For the first meal, we’ll have a roast chicken dinner (with potatoes, veg, gravy and all that good stuff) and eat half the chicken. For the second meal, with the left-over chicken, we’ll make a big chicken salad, pasta, stir-fry or lettuce wraps. And finally, for the third meal, I’ll boil down the carcass and make a big Asian-style soup. By doing this, the chicken has now fed 2.5 people for three nights, and for me, eating meat is an easier concept to “swallow” when I know that there has been no waste.

Ginger Chicken Wraps

One of our favorite meals is Ginger Chicken Lettuce Wraps (phase two of chicken-eating)—it’s just such a flavourful, gluten-free dish. In addition to the chicken, I also pack the lettuce wraps with various sautéed veggies.  Like all the meals that I make, these are easily alterable–use what you  like or have on hand. Switch up the veggies, use ground turkey, or no meat at all! Skies the limit with these guys, so get creative.
